La Petite Mort Saperavi Qvevri 2019: Review

I love the label.  Part classical European painting, part Gothic, scratched graffiti writing, moody and pregnant with expectation.  The saperavi grape’s native home is Georgia in the Caucuses – where wine was first made by humans thousands of years ago. La Petite Mort Saperavi Qvevri 2019 is the best Australian saperavi I’ve had and a delightful wine by any measure.  Brooding dark black fruits and liquorice smoothly integrated. Good finish.  Their website says the wine is unfined and unfiltered and rustic.  Personally, I thought this was classy stuff and a great alternative to yet-another-shiraz.  

14.0% alcohol by volume.
